Project Designing for Specific Users
This report outlines the decisions made and steps followed throughout the codesign process in the project Designing for Specific Users. The purpose of this project was to tackle a challenge being faced by an extreme user who is limited by a certain condition that prevents them from performing activities in the same manner that the average person would. The user with which this project was conducted suffers from a condition called Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy which only allows them to see 5% focus compared to a healthy sighted person. Throughout this report one challenge faced by this user on a daily basis is confronted and a solution is found through different codesign methods.
